Chair Massage

Sit back, relax and enjoy some precious moments of zen calm with Relax in the City.

We offer on-site chair massage, also known as seated acupressure, which fuses the ancient Oriental massage practices of Anma and Shiatsu.

Chair massage is a meridian based therapy, which involves the use of thumb, finger, elbow and knuckle pressure over acupressure points to stimulate and balance the flow of energy throughout the body.

On-site chair massage concentrates on the back, shoulders, neck, arms, hands and scalp, in order to stimulate the circulatory, muscular, nervous, immune and lymphatic systems. Chair massage also promotes the release of feel-good endorphins. The chair massage recipient is left feeling simultaneously relaxed and energised after a treatment, with no more disruption to the working day than a coffee break.

The client is seated in an ergonomically designed chair for comfort, which supports the recipients body and allows the practitioner to easily access acupressure points. No oils are used during a chair massage session and the client remains fully clothed throughout. Clients are screened with a medical questionnaire prior to having a chair massage treatment and if chair massage does not prove suitable we may be able to offer one of our other services, which also include Reiki and Indian Head Massage.

We offer chair massage in 20 or 30 minute sessions to companies and offices within and around London and we are certified and insured practitioners.

Chair massage is a great way to boost morale, reward employee performance and improve the health and well-being of employees. Professional, corporate chair massage treatments start from £20 for a 20 minute on-site massage.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements. We’re cheerful and helpful (thanks to all the treatments we give ourselves!)


On-site Chair Massage Benefits

A quick blitz of chair massage at work can make a huge difference to the well-being and focus of employees. Researchers at Bowling Green State University in Ohio found that 15-minute on-site chair massage treatments significantly reduced the participants blood pressure. Other researchers at the University of Miami School of Medicine in Florida compared chair massage to simply relaxing for 15 minutes and found after five weeks of massages, twice per week, the participants receiving chair massage demonstrated increased alertness and lower anxiety and stress levels. Numerous studies have provided evidence of the physiological and psychological benefits of massage.
